The Clubs decision to recoup an "old" symbol has poularity written all over it, something the directives totally lack from the fan-base. The latter hopes to lift the team & recreate the "lost spirit", whatever that may be.
From here we wish Simeone all the luck & hope that he can turn around the "lost ship". Anyone is better than the previous Coach Manzano. Said this, & to the credit of the last Coach, the real problems are higher up the Club hierarchy, here nothing has changed.
|Sosa for Argentina|
Local Sports media has commented that the new Coach, Simeone, has already made his first player request for the "Winter Transfer Market", it is 26 year old JOSE ERNESTO SOSA currently playing in the Ukraine. The Coach & player coincided at Estudiantes in Argentina & the player left a good image on the then Coach Simeone.
Lets wait & see, as money isn´t exactly flowing at Atletico, especially now that they have had to fork out money to pay the contract of sacked Coach Manzano. Selling José Antonio Reyes many bring home some bacon, but Simeone has said that he counts with the Spanish midfielder, for now.
